The Buggy for a Baby – Oyster Zero Review.

Are you looking for a buggy for your baby? Well, it might not be the best buggy out there, but it’s one of the best. Like, I always state what’s considered to be the best depends on who’s looking.

Their lifestyles and what they need. The Oyster Zero Pram it’s a popular stroller among many parents. The stroller is lighter than the Oyster 2 according to many sites and parents.

Which makes it better and the pram is also noticeable for its excellent textures, price and design. For this article, I will be giving you a detailed review of the pram.

Detailing the pros and pointing out the cons. To see if it still has its value in the market I will compare it with Babystyles latest Oyster 3 pram, and with another pushchair.

Let’s see why is the buggy for a baby.

The Oyster Zero Pram.

Product: Oyster Zero.

Price: £433.00

Size of the Product: L102cm × W59cm × H87cm.

Delivery: Multiple options.

My Rating: 9/10.

Babystyle keeps amazing us with their quality designed prams and strollers, and this one is not an exception. Looking through the features and accessories you will find the pram to have its spot in the market.

The seat is suitable to use from birth because it provides a lie-flat position. This means it can position to a 180-degree angle, allowing your newborn to lie flat as possible.

Other positions are also available for when they grow up when you need to position them in an upright position. Oyster Zero seat has been reported to be roomy.

Offering enough space for your busy toddler and baby. A place they can play and sit comfortably. A 5 point harness system with straps for more security.

A legrest is also included where your toddler will rest their legs and feet. Hence, the name. After a long day of hopping around an afternoon nap will be needed from time to time.

As mentioned above the stroller also comes with a cot, which makes it a pram. We will get more into that below. You also got a big and extendable canopy.

With UPF50+ which protects from the weather. Behind the canopy, you have pockets, which can be used to store your personal belongings. Either your phone, keys and wallet.

No need for you to bring with you a handbag or jacket if you don’t want to.

More Features.

Now the chassis or also called a frame. All-wheel suspension and the front wheels are lockable swivel wheels. This means you can lock them to allow a sturdy brake, and when ready to go unlock them for a smoother ride.

Swivel wheels allow a smoother ride through narrow streets. The chassis is also considered to be a light stroller compared to many at just 7.9kg.

Although it’s not the lightest stroller or pram, parents find it easy to handle. It also offers an easy fold. Just like my baby’s stroller.

All you need to do is release the safety hatch and then pull the straps, and then the stroller will bend and fold. Super easy for when I do it all the time.

It’s not something you will notice right away, so you need to read the instructions. This is done with one hand. The chassis also offers a leather detachable bumper bar.

Making it easy to place your toddler or baby on the stroller, and even when taking them out. The handlebar is also made with leather although is not adjustable.

This gives the pram a quality and modern look. Also makes it a head-turner. Lastly, but not least you have the shopping basket underneath.

It’s big enough to carry a changing bag and some groceries. Looks the same size as mine. It can handle some kilos. The Oyster Zero is available to buy in many colours apart from these two.

 

Accessories.

One accessory is of course the carrycot. Which comes with a cosy mattress and apron to keep your baby comfortable. Protect them from the weather.

It has rock bars which means you can rock them to sleep in the cot. It has its cover and it’s big enough to suit your little one up to 9kgs.

Which can be enough time for them to be able to sit upright and support their necks. The cot sits very high on the seat, which gives a better bonding moment for the child and their parents.

The pushchair is also compatible with a car seat.

Included with the purchase is a rain cover. Much needed for everyone. It offers great protection from other weather conditions too.

A changing bag is always needed when buying a stroller unless you have one already. View my list of 10 fancy baby changing bags.

Cons.

  • Forward-facing only. With the cot and the car seat on you will have a rear-facing position. Because the stroller comes with a cot it’s not bad. I will advise having your baby facing you up until 6 months or so.
  • Can be pricey for some. The single stroller is cheap according to many, but the pram system it’s a bit pricey on its own.
  • No adjustable handlebar. Can be a bit difficult for those who need to adjust it depending on their height and situation. It’s super helpful for many families.
  • Not the lightest stroller out there.
  • Not all-terrain wheels and tyres are not punctured proof. Which means you can’t use the pram EVERYWHERE. 

Oyster Zero Pram vs Other Popular Strollers.

This is to only analyse the stroller, not the cot. The Oyster Zero is indeed popular and quality, but are there other strollers that bring more quality?

As mentioned above I will compare it with the Oyster 3 pushchair and see what the difference are. Are there still parents who will prefer the Oyster Zero?

I have also chosen to compare it with the Mamas and Papas Armadillo pushchair. They are similar in the market but are not compared that often.

Oyster Zero Pram vs Oyster 3 Pushchair.

Although it’s not a fear comparison, I wanted to see what the Oyster Zero had that’s good. These two look similar but are a bit different too. These are the similar features they share:

  • Suitable from birth up to 20kg.
  • Travel System convertible.
  • All suspension.
  • Swivel lockable wheels.
  • Reclining positions.
  • 5 point harness system.
  • UPF50+ protection.
  • Easy fold.
  • One system brake.
  • Leather made handlebar and bumper bar.

As you can see the Oyster Zero does have many features that are beneficial and will stand out from many strollers. Of course, the Oyster 3 pushchair is better.

It offers an adjustable handlebar, A ventilation system, foam-filled tyres and zip with canopy. It offers more features and you can view these by clicking on the link.

On the other hand, the Oyster Zero offers a pocket behind the canopy and a more roomy seat. These are features some parents will love to have.

I will say the Oyster Zero does stand a chance. Because it’s an older version it’s also cheaper which means less money for some.

As we all know the features are not the only deciding factors. If you purchase baby products before, you will agree.

Oyster Zero Pram vs Mamas and Papas Armadillo Pushchair.

A bit different with the design but they have the same style. Both are standard and lightweight strollers praised by many for their quality fabrics and materials. These are the features they share:

  • Suitable from birth.
  • Reclining positions.
  • Big hood with UPF50+ protection.
  • 5 point harness system.
  • One-hand fold and compact.
  • Lockable front wheels.
  • Adjustable leg rest.
  • Suitable with car seats.
  • Forward-facing.

Many features in similarity indeed. This makes both strollers quite hard to distinguish when it comes to choosing the best one.

The Armadillo pushchair offers a magnetic peek a boo when your child faces the other way. The latter also has a more compact and easy fold. The Oyster Zero is suitable with a carrycot which the former is not.

It offers pockets behind the canopy and has a leather made handlebar and bumper bar. The stroller also weighs much less at 7.9kg while the Armadillo pushchair weighs 8.9kg.

Both offer a variety of colours and have the same price. Analysing both you can see that the Oyster Zero pushchair is better despite sharing many major features.

This is of course my choice base on my lifestyle. It can be different for many.

Is it the Buggy for a Baby?

What do you think? It’s the Oyster Zero the buggy for a baby? If you want something lightweight, simple and yet quality then this Babystyle pushchair is here to make your wish come true.

The features are basic, some are better than other popular strollers and at the same the price is reasonable. No wonder it still has its popularity in the market.

It is searched by many across the UK and has been reviewed by many who state it offers one of the best experiences. A good buggy for your baby and toddler.

It will grow with them from birth up to 4 years, which is good age suitability. What are your thoughts on these other strollers? Which of these do you like?

  1. I purchased Oyster Zero Buggy for my daughter about a month ago. She was looking for a lightweight and fashionable looking buggy for my granddaughter, which when I was a young parent, we called them strollers. The seat has comfortable padding and can be adjusted as the child get bigger. When I came across this buggy, I was impressed by how beautiful it looked; and the price tag was very reasonable. So, for a good price, I got my granddaughter a styling buggy that matches her beauty.
     
    I find the buggy very useful on our family weekend outings when my granddaughter starts getting cranky and tired. We just place the bundle of joy in the buggy and shortly later, she is sleeping, not matter what the terrain. The suspension on the Oyster Zero provides a smooth bump-less ride, the comfort of a portable bed and plenty of room underneath for toys, clothes and diapers. The buggy has a really nice safety wrist snap feature that for any reason your hand loses contact with the buggy, it stops. A nice feature you hope you never use. The other feature I really like is how easy it is to collapse the buggy, it’s quick and safe. I would definitely recommend the Oyster Zero Buggy to anyone looking for a buggy, or what I like to call, a stroller.
